Several years ago Powerball had about 100 people win the second prize in 1 drawing. At that time, I believe it was worth 100k to win the second prize and 100 people winning was completely unheard of. When ask about their numbers the 100 winners had played the numbers from a Fortune cookie. The cookie had 5 of the 6 numbers listed in it correctly. So some good results have come from playing Fortune Cookies. But I personally have never played the numbers from a cookie.
